Really spacey little introductory jam, cool early version. Brent stands out on the keys.

This is the best one, great intro jam and a tremendous late song jam that leads into the final lyrical section. Very Hot.

If you love Black Peter please give this one a listen. It will not disappoint. This may be my all-time favorite version.

+1, The initial jam into drums really goes places and then the reprise after a truly stiking BP is just magic.
Scarlet Begonias -> Fire On The Mountain

Kiel Auditorium

The Berenstein source is a major upgrade in quality for what is a pretty awesome show. This was just uploaded to archive sometime this year. Great performance and so much more listenable than the first one recorded out by "the hot dog stand" as someone out it on archive. Do yourself a favor if you love early 1980's Dead give this a whirl: https://archive.org/details/gd1981-07-08.134091.nak300.bernstein.flac2448
